Garmin ecoRoute

Garmin ecoroute

UPDATE: TWICE is reporting that ecoRoute works with 2xx and 7xx series nuvis.

Another Garmin announcement today is ecoRoute, a software update for some nuvi units that adds a "less fuel" route option. Additionally, ecoRoute includes a Fuel Report that tracks fuel usage over time, and a Mileage Report that monitors mileage and fuel usage on a per-trip basis.

You can see if your nüvi is compatible with ecoRoute through a free, downloadable software update at

  1. EcoRoute appeared on my nüvi 205w with the 4.80 software update. Not entirely convinced of it’s utility, especially as I don’t know exactly how many mpg my car does!

  2. Just spend an hour trying to install it on my 250. Ecoroute doesn’t appear after the update.

  3. Yeah, it looks like its only for the 2×5 and 7×5 series.

  4. yeah… i really wish that it was available for my 250, seems like it would be a good tool to have 🙁
